  •  I know her. I live in NY (0+ / 0-)

    I know hundreds of women who know and admire her.

    She is a genuinely good person....and what she has taken from being Senator and talking to small shop owners or farmers in upstate NY,  is the ability to see the world from their eyes.  She loves being Senator...because she genuinely wants to make other people's lives better.

    The measure of a good politician, which I see as an honorable calling, is the ability to walk in other people's shoes.  That is exactly why Obama's San Francisco rematks were so damaging.  He spoke to RICH people about poor and middle class people as though he was an anthropologist discussing some tribe or a sociologist discussing some class or a scientist discussing some interesting species....that's being aloof and distant.  he was telling the world he couldn't walk in their shoes.  He telelgraphing that he's wasn't emotionally empathetic...he has intellectual understanding but not that ability to walk in other's shoes and see the world with others' eyes.  

    She has that now...working hard at her job has given that to her.  Obama starting running for president before he could develop it.
